A fine gentleman and shooter named Ray Natale has been running the Thursday night shoots. Not sure if this is permanent of if he's just filling in - but he has been doing the club well - kudos to him.
As for the Skeet and SC components of the club - I'm not sure they are losing any money - overall costs are about the same and 100% customer reimbursed - but they certainly do not make as much money as does the trap program.
There has been some backbiting over how to spend club money on these three disciplines - with the trap guys saying that money should be spent in proportion to how it is generated (thus more towards trap). The others say it's club money and should be spent for the betterment of the club overall. Personally, I agree with the "overall betterment" approach. They key is to promote more shooting, and skeet and SC setups commensurate with the outstanding trap facilies at Oxford would, in my opinion, bring in more people overall. Isn't that better for eveeryone?
Anyway - if you want to shoot a great Thursday night trap program - Oxford has it. The every other Sunday SC course is also pretty good.
BTW - seems to me there would be more skeeet and SC money coming into the club if they opened more days of the month to them. In the end there needs to be a little better apples to apples comparison.
Funny how there are no complaints over the 5-stand program.....
The skeet and sporting clays are making money but, If the shooters would only take enough shells to the line they would double the profit they are making. Five stand is a good money maker but they have the same problem with the shooters taking more shells to the line than needed. Let me have that pair again and again and again. WE WILL NOT EVEN START ON THE WOBBLE TRAY !!!!!!!
